/ Easy in lakes
Hi all we are heading to the lake district/north pennies I a few months and am hoping to get out to do some bouldering we are still new to outdoors stuff so are looking for easy bouldering v4 max anyone have any recommendations of where we should be going
Carrock, St Bees, Fisherground
As above, Carrock Fell is ideal for what you are after.
There is a new bouldering guide coming out very soon, which will definitely help you! Until you can get your hands on that, st bees is my favourite so far, but ive had a good day near Coniston too ad thpse sort of grades.
